ROSENBORG v LILLESTROM

Saturday 20th May 2017 – Kickoff: 1430hrs

Football – Norway – Eliteserien Betting Tips

Norwegian Eliteserien league leaders, Rosenborg, will be keen to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they play host to early strugglers Lillestrom at their Lerkendal Stadion following defeat to Tromso during the week.

Rosenborg suffered an unexpected 2-1 loss in the week, but with the visit of lowly Lillestrom today, the home side will be keen to get the win here. The hosts hold a useful early season home record of  3-1-1  8/4 so far, on the back of wins over Odd, Molde and Brann.

Danish striker Bendtner, who has had a string of clubs over his career, has moved from Nottingham Forest to Rosenborg, and he’s scored 3 goals already so far this term. Keep an eye out also for forward Helland (3 goals).

Visitors Lillestrom currently sit second from bottom in the Norwegian top flight as they’ve earned just two wins from their first nine league matches of the new domestic season, and they’re three points above bottom club Viking.

However, six defeats from their first nine matches tells its own story for Lillestrom who look like they may well struggle throughout this campaign, and a long, hard season is predicted for them this season.

Lillestrom come in to this match with an away record of  1-1-2  4/6 under their belts following early defeats at Molde and Aalesund, 2-1 and 3-1 respectively, although they have recovered since with a 1-0 win at Sogndal and a point at Kristiansund in a 1-1 draw.

Lillestrom have registered just three away wins from their last 15 matches on their travels.

Pick: Rosenborg AH-1 @ 1.52 bet365
